and religion. what was the coverage like? >> in fact this morning i ran the 47% and i asked two questions. one is how much debt the does it get and how many media outlets cover the story and what is the shelf life? does it last a day a week or a month? they were short. maybe a three week kind of peak. romney to 47% we still haven't seen the end of that obviously but it's been about a month now. the story is dropoff but they get dragged back in either by opponents were dragged in by the defense and i am sure they come out of the presidential debates and wondered if obama will ask a question about that. the issue is in my mind which of these gaps are ones we ought to pay attention to? do they represent a true character flaw and do they represent an incapacity to act in a way that we would like or are they just -- we all make mistakes. they have them hanging out in the public and now with the internet and youtube and places like that they are not only discriminated more broadly and quickly but there is an archival capability we can go out and find out what barack obama said in 1998 or what mitt r

their religion. in fact, restrictions on baha'is extend far beyond their religious practices to further restrict their civil rights and their human rights. many members of the baha'i faith living in iran are even subject to harassment, to persecution by the regime and others with extensive reports of confiscation of property, restrictions on travel and raids on baha'i homes and businesses. the iranian government continues to arrest and detain baha'is based on their religious beliefs with at least 60 cases logged last year alone. the members of the national leadership of baha'is in iran arrested in 2008 and unfairly tried with minimal access to their defense attorneys are now serving a 20-year sentence for crimes, crimes including insulting religious sanctity and propaganda against the regime. the government maintains possession of many baha'i properties that were seized following the 1979 revolution, including holy places, cemeteries and historical sites. many of those properties have now been destroyed. baha'is are barred from leadership positions in the government and are only permits to enrol

should extend discrimination law, or you should protect the free exercise of religion to the greatest extent possible? we would get these cases and resolve them in terms of a particular liberal or conservative political agenda. there are ways of characterizing us that make more sense in terms of what we do. some of my colleagues prefer to adhere strictly to that text of the statute. others of my colleagues look more expensively to what we call the legislative history of the background of the statute, or a purpose, and it makes sense to refer to them in those terms. some of those think it is important what the framers of the constitution were thinking about at the founding when they drafted it. others on the court take a more flexible view and think that the interpretation of the constitution should be informed by evolutionary developments. those sorts of things make sense. it is easier, i think, for court reporters to say that justice is liberal and that justice is conservative, and i do not think it is helpful in looking at what we do. >> let me switch to a question about -- more int
